Jim O’Rourke – Simple Songs

$52.95 Inc. GST

Released in 2015, Jim O’Rourke’s “Simple Songs” marked his return to the singer-songwriter format after a nearly fourteen-year hiatus. Despite the album’s title, the music offers more than straightforward melodies. O’Rourke weaves elements of indie rock, pop rock, and even art rock into the compositions, creating a soundscape that’s both catchy and layered.

Lyrically, the album delves into themes that resonate with the everyday, including navigating relationships (“Friends with Benefits”), personal reflection (“Half Life Crisis”), and the passage of time (“Last Year”). The title itself carries a hint of tongue-in-cheek humor, suggesting that while the songs may possess a certain accessibility, they retain a depth that defies simple categorization.
